It All Comes Together

It started out very foggy!

We met early, loaded the cars, and headed over to the Museum of Appalachia.

 It didn't seem like we had as much inventory as we have in the past, but, we'll make do with what we have.


  The plan went well.  We took all the display pieces into the Peter's Cabin, and put all the tubs of inventory on the porch.

  We played around with a couple of the pieces to see how they worked best, and then started pulling out all the wonderful handwoven articles that our weavers produced.

***Let me just say that Anna, Betsy and Linda surprised me with all the items they sent!  They have been busy!!!!

We have placemats and rugs on the right side of the cabin

  The rug stand is perfect for the corner, and beside it on the left is the large shelf for towels and table runners.

  This year we have lots and lots of scarves!

  More scarves and our shawls are placed as folks come in the door.

We have a coat rack that hooks over the door to display more scarves and some of our purses. 

  I'm sure that after the workers come tomorrow, they will move things around to suit them....that's how it works.  We call it "fluffing."

Also, we will be hanging some of the rugs on the porch railing to bring some folks into the cabin.
  A big thanks to Tina, Marie, Ray, Christie and Liz for all your hard work!!!!

I think we're ready!

It all looks amazing, I see about five things I want starting with that V woven silver grey looking scarf in pic 3. I really need to learn how to do that!
Here's hoping it is a fantastic show and you only have to pack your displays....
